Damien Boath649We have the honour to interview one of the great fantasy authors ever!Stephen Donaldson, author of the Thomas Covenant series (Lord Fouls Bane etc)If you like fantasy, then this is a must listen! Join us to ask questions of the man via our Q&A!From www.stephenrdonaldson.com     Born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio, Stephen R. Donaldson lived in India (where his father was a medical missionary) until 1963. He graduated from the College of Wooster (Ohio) in 1968, served two years as a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War, doing hospital work in Akron, then attended Kent State University, where he received his M.A. in English in 1971.     After dropping out of his Ph.D. program and moving to New Jersey in order to write fiction, Donaldson made his publishing debut with the first "Covenant" trilogy in 1977. That enabled him to move to a healthier climate. He now lives in New Mexico.     The novels for which he is best known have received a number of awards. However, the achievements of which he is most proud are the ones that seemed the most unlikely. In 1993 he received a Doctor of Literature degree from the College of Wooster, and in 1994 he gained a black belt in Shotokan karate from Sensei Mike Heister and Anshin Personal Defense.     After completing the five-book, seven-year Gap sequence of science fiction novels, Donaldson spent quite some time "on vacation." However, he has now returned to work. His most recent book prior to The Man Who Fought Alone was a second collection of short fiction, Reave the Just and Other Tales. He is currently hard at work on "The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant".The Newbie Writers' Podcast Episode 131 - Stephen Donaldson!2014-05-03 01:00:003G+

Ole Olson47,128It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest. On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google. No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source). If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change. Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like:•ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council)•American Conservative Union•Americans for Tax Reform•CATO Institute•Federalist Society•George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center•Heritage Action•Mercatus Center•National Taxpayers Union•R Street Institute•Texas Public Policy Foundation______________________________________________More information:Don’t Be Evil?

UNICEF USA341,220Join our End Trafficking team as they host a Google+ Hangout on Air to talk about the importance of addressing the demand for human trafficking. Human trafficking is a business, operating on the principles of supply and demand. There is a large demand for commercial sex, cheap labor, and cheap goods. As long as there is a demand, there will always be someone willing to meet the supply, even at the expense of another human being.  We'll be joined by our friends at CAASE and +Not For Sale's Free2Work. CAASE will discuss the demand for sex trafficking and how they're working to address it, specifically with youth. Not For Sale will share about the demand for cheap goods and therefore cheap labor and how their app, Free2Work, helps inform consumers about the purchases they make. A link to the Google+ Hangout on Air will be posted on this event page, as well End Trafficking's Twitter account and Google + Community, shortly before we go live.Twitter: https://twitter.com/EndTraffickGoogle+ Community: http://bit.ly/19JiLzs After our initial discussion, we will open it up to Q&A from the audience, so be sure to leave your questions for our panelists on this page!Why We Need to Address Demand2013-11-14 19:00:0097G+

Artists In The Plus1,707,797+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed.(Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf )+Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists.Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist.First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work.The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener.Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement.At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute.Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett.Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percus"Concerts In The Plus!" Preston Reed2013-05-26 21:00:0070G+

We're going to provide a steady stream of humorous and thoughtful commentary throughout Dodd's speech, so please join us online or in San Francisco.Chris Dodd pushed hard to pass the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill that would given content holders new tools to censor the Internet in the name of stopping "piracy."  Dodd has also said that he is "confident" negotiations for a SOPA revival are taking place. While it's tempting to write off that confidence as the result of watching one too many zombie movies, it should be no surprise that the MPAA is pushing for a new backroom deal. That's why EFF and other Internet freedom advocates are committed to fighting for an uncensored web.Follow our live coverage on Twitter @EFFLive or buy tickets to attend in person: https://doddandnewsom.eventbrite.com/ EFF Livetweets Chris Dodd's Speech in San Francisco2012-10-03 03:00:0060G+

Approximately 30% of my posts are shares from those who follow me. G+ Network is the BEST place to Network on G+ with REAL PEOPLE. We are building small virtual neighborhoods and town squares all over the globe. We have a team of about 60 moderators who are there to keep things balanced. You can self promote in the G+ Network as long as you are an active member of the community. That means you just "don't post and go." We want engagers and not solicitors in the network.   For more information:https://docs.google.com/document/d/17FCGYkBOaKylcDPsep9W87NItwDzKkMd11ei8FaZ5u0/edit?usp=sharingBLOGGERSMake sure you check my profile every couple of days.

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721342CC G+

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens.

[New details emerge about downed flight MH17, and it's worse than we could have even imagined.]

108. 108 of the world's top HIV researchers, some of whom have been working on solving this global health crisis for several decades.

This event just became even more tragic on a scale I can't begin to measure, the impact of which is too far reaching to comprehend. And my outrage grows to meet it.

Aiming for the Top

I asked you to help me crack the Top 100 Free bestseller list on Amazon last night, and you delivered! Thank you! If you grabbed a copy of Without Bloodshed yesterday, let me know so I can add you to my circles/friends list/etc. I like to stay in touch with my fans. If you didn't get your free copy yesterday, you can still get one today until midnight in Seattle.

Today's Mission



I'm currently at No. 59 overall on the Top 100 Free list. Today, I want to hit No. 1. That's right. I want to shoulder aside all the romance and new-adult and erotica and claw my way straight to the top. And I need your help to do it!

A Small Reward

To reward my fans, old and new, and to entice new fans, I'm going to give you guys a little treat. Check out the first scene from The Blackened Phoenix, which continues the... more »

I Love My Google+ Fans

I’ll admit that my efforts on social media tend to be a bit lackluster, and focus primarily on Google+. However, my efforts paid a small dividend recently in the form of praise by three Plus users: Rowan Cota, Daniel Koeker, and Lisa Cohen. Because I love my fans, I’m going to let...

Last night I finished +Matthew Graybosch's WITHOUT BLOODSHED. An ambitious SF novel that I enjoyed quite a lot and would absolutely recommend, both for its intriguing world building and for the sprinkling of nerd-pop references throughout. (They amused me, but weren't at all annoying.)

The story really spans/straddles multiple genres with futuristic/alt history elements and a heavy thriller aspect. It reminded me a litle of the complex thrillers I loved in my 20s and 30s, and most strongly of SHIBUMI for the elements of a singular protagonist working through a world-wide political conspiracy.

My main complaint is that the leaders of the conspiracy have too little 'face time' in the story. Ultimately, I was confused at spots in terms of who was who and what their aims and goals were. I don't want a book to spoonfeed me, and I don't mind when a characters is... more »

Saturday Scenes: Desperate Pass

I never got around to finishing the story of how Edmund Cohen ended up working with the sorcerer Desdinova during Nationfall. Here's the first scene. It's pretty damn rough.

#saturdayscenes #starbreakerscenes #grayboschwrites

Edmund Cohen peered down at the town nestled in the valley below through the scope of a Dragunov sniper's rifle he looted from a former Russian Army base at the foot of the Ural Mountains. The inhabitants wandered the streets, heedless of the temperature falling in the setting sun's wake. Many retained sufficient memory of their human lives to armor themselves against the cold in thick parkas, but just as many staggered about in the clothes covering them when the Patch stripped them of reason and volition, reducing them to what Edmund and his men called zombies for lack of a better word.... more »

If you're an active user of Google+ and an avid reader there's a good chance you've heard of +Matthew Graybosch's novel, Without Bloodshed, which I have just (belatedly, and apologetically) finished reading. If not, or if you need any further motivation to get yourself a copy, I highly recommend picking it up. It's a definite 5/5 for me.

[New details emerge about downed flight MH17, and it's worse than we could have even imagined.]

108. 108 of the world's top HIV researchers, some of whom have been working on solving this global health crisis for several decades.

This event just became even more tragic on a scale I can't begin to measure, the impact of which is too far reaching to comprehend. And my outrage grows to meet it.

Surly Muse Interview

Daniel Swenson at Surly Muse, author of Orison, was kind enough to interview me for his blog. Here are but two of the questions I answered for him while also teasing The Blackened Phoenix and my upcoming Curiosity Quills serial, Silent Clarion. You can read the rest of the interview on Surly Muse.

When do you know a book is done?

I know a book is done when not only am I thoroughly sick of it, but so is my wife. Trust me, Ragnarok could come and go, and I could still find aspects of Without Bloodshed that could use improvement.

Maybe I have too many viewpoint characters. Maybe there's still some wooden dialogue. Maybe I didn't explain something as well as I could. Maybe I over-explained something else, and left too little to the reader's imagination. It's always something, but if I don't draw a line and say,... more »

“the disparity between men and women’s representation in science and math arises from culture rather than genetics seems beyond dispute.” And when that culture still holds onto sexist views of women, even attempts to rectify this imbalance can backfire.

Coming Soon from Curiosity Quills Press: Silent Clarion

My curiosity might get me killed. I thought I needed a vacation from my duties as an Adversary in service to the Phoenix Society. After learning about unexplained disappearances in a little town called Clarion, I couldn’t stop myself from checking it out.

Now I must protect a witness to two murders without any protection but my sword. I must identify a murderer who strikes from the shadows. I must expose secrets the Phoenix Society is hellbent on keeping buried.

I have no support but an ally I dare not trust. If I cannot break the silence hiding what happened in Clarion’s past, I have no future. I must discover the truth about Project Harker. Failure is not an option.

One of the special joys of vacation is time to read. Last night I read the very well written and highly original HIPSTOPIA by +Rachel Desilets. I don't know how she managed to write a piece that works both as a straight narrative as well as clever satire. My only complaint is it was a novella length piece where I wanted it to be a full length novel. Now I'm looking forward to getting the sequel.

I'm currently at the 30% point of +Matthew Graybosch's WITHOUT BLOODSHED. it's a seriously complex and intelligent story with imaginative world building. It's been a long time since I've gotten immersed in such a unique world.

Parked Somewhere Different

I had to park somewhere different when I came back to my day job from lunch, and found these flowers on the way in. I snapped a photo on my way out after work.

You see, my day job is located in a building set in a corporate park containing three other buildings. There's plenty of landscaped greenery to take the edge off the parking lots, but I tend to park in the covered lot closed to my building in the summer.

That wasn't an option this afternoon, so I had to park around the back of another building and walk to mine. Not that I minded; I could use the exercise.

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcominga... more »

Create an Unstoppable Disgaea D2 Army, Dood!

Introducing Disgaea D2

Nippon Ichi Software's Disgaea line of tactical RPGs has always been about two things: parodies of Japanese pop culture, and outrageously overpowered characters. We're talking a level cap of 9999 here, and once you hit it, just reincarnate the character and start again, making them even stronger in the process.

Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is no different. You can take advantage of game features like replayable maps, adjustable difficulty levels, and equipment customization via the Item World to build characters capable of clearing the games most difficult maps on their own. I'm going to tell you how, based on my own experiments.

What's YOUR favorite fictional sword?

Sure, this Fantasy Faction article on swords in fantasy dates back to 2011, but that doesn't bother me. Not when I still listen to classic Black Sabbath albums like Paranoid, which dates back to 1970.

I can't blame the author for not mentioning the Starbreaker, since I didn't publish until late last year. I didn't grow up watching Thundarr the Barbarian, and I managed to avoid Thundercats. I can name several swords I prefer over Squall Leonhart's gunblade, despite being one of the few people who enjoyed Final Fantasy VIII.


Stormbringer

It's at least four feet worth of rune-carved black metal; it eats souls and feeds its wielder power; it can destroy the avatars of gods and demons, and it inspired a badass Blue Oyster Cult song. Aside from Stormbringer's nasty little tendency tomunc... more »

Excerpt: Return of the Loving Dead

First, an apology to authors Araminta Star Matthews and Stan Swanson is in order. This excerpt from Horror High School: Return of the Loving Dead was supposed to go up much earlier today, and didn't because I screwed up. I'm sorry.

This is a hilarious YA romp with zombies, high school drama, and even some BDSM courtesy of the protagonist's extremely naughty BFF. Seriously, people, Jasmine and Claire Ashecroft from Starbreaker would get along famously.

Too Close to Grimdark for Comfort

I wrote this on my lunch break for the first scene in Chapter 3 of The Blackened Phoenix, and then decided to take it out. Not only was it closer to grimdark than I usually go, since I'm not Joe Abercrombie, but it didn't make sense for Naomi to relate this experience from her past when Morgan Stormrider and the others are about to learn that their operational security is a joke because of tech built into Morgan's head.

Also, the nature of Naomi's anecdote is just full of triggering content, and I thought it would be better to not include it. I'm just a bit old to be trying to shock people to get attention. However, I'm posting it here because it seems a shame to throw it away. I might get a short story or a novella out of it, if I can refine it and tone it down a bit.

Savatage: The Wake of Magellan (1998)

I had Savatage's penultimate album, The Wake of Magellan, playing all night while working on this blog. It's a rock opera/concept album that relates the story of a fictitious Spanish sailor who descended from Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, and incorporates real-life events such as the Maersk Dubai incident and the murder of Irish reporter Veronica Guerin.

Savatage: The Wake of Magellan

There's over an hour of great music, including some complex vocal shenanigans in "The Wake of Magellan" and "The Hourglass". The instrumentals "Underture" and "The Storm" are absolute essentials for any metalhead.

This album is so good it's a shame Savatage broke up, leaving only the Trans-Siberian Orchestra behind.

I'm halfway through Orison by Daniel Swensen, the first part of his Lotus Throne sequence. It's a damn good epic fantasy debut.

And it would be nice if I could spell the man's name right on the first attempt. It's not like it wasn't right on the cover.

Cover for Orison by Daniel Swensen

About Orison

Desperate to pay off her debt, she searches for a score big enough to earn her freedom. Instead, she finds the orison, a magical artifact that could tip the balance of power between the city and the Empire seeking to conquer it.

Saturday Scenes - Elisabeth Bathory

I’ve been busy with the day job and Silent Clarion, so here’s an excerpt from Chapter Seven of Without Bloodshed for this week’s #SaturdayScenes . Elisabeth Bathory is also the ensof Ashtoreth, one of the Disciples of the Watch. She doesn’t trust her fellow disciple, Adramelech, but is he really the traitor she thinks him to be? You can see for yourself, though this scene may be borderline NSFW.
 
* * * * *

The warmth of the bath and the fragrance of jasmine conspired to lull Ashtoreth into drowsiness. She floated in the tub, letting its currents caress her. She would rise from the waters soon, and relax while the attendants dried her body and massaged oils into her skin before joining her in bed. For now, she was content to drift.

A cool draft signaled the opening of the bathroom door. One of her attendants, adusky-sk... more »
